How Lunasin Works

We sat down with Dr. Alfredo Galvez, the scientist behind Reliv’s LunaRich® soy powder, to discuss how the lunasin soy peptide works at the epigenetic level to promote optimal health.

The sequencing of the human genome was hailed by scientists at that time to be the harbinger of medical miracles. Yet 12 years later, deciphering our DNA has brought us no closer to understanding, much less finding effective preventive approaches for, major chronic diseases. The good news: groundbreaking research is uncovering a higher level of complexity beyond genetic variation. Even better news: proper nutrition can produce positive changes at this higher level.

Q: What is the epigenome and what role does it play in cell function?

To better explain the epigenome, you must first understand what the genome is. The genome is the DNA that makes up a living thing — the blueprint of life. Each cell in our…
